credit freeze). What is a credit freeze and will you know how to freeze your credit when you should? It's maximum security for your identity and credit because it allows you to freeze credit. So once this credit freeze is in place, the three major credit bureaus - Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion - are not able to release your credit report to any third parties without your permission. Because creditors won't grant new credit until they can see your credit report, identity thieves will be less likely to open new accounts in your name.
We make the locking and unlocking of your credit easy for you, working with you to freeze your credit. To set up the credit freeze we contact the three national credit bureaus - Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion - via certified mail, on your behalf.
When you want to open a new account or release your credit report for any reason, just call one of our On-Call Protection specialists. Fortunately, you can unfreeze and freeze credit reports as frequently as you'd like.
